Program

The English Language Course is addressed to beginners with no or very basic English skills. The aim of the program is to equip participants with elementary language skills useful in everyday life. During the course of study the participants will practice speaking, listening, reading, and writing, which will allow them to express themselves and communicate freely in English, in daily social situations.

The program offers a modern and practical approach to language learning, which ensures that course participants quickly improve their English skills. Classes take place Monday to Thursday, so on Fridays participants can either attend Polish Prep School or participate in other events at SWPS University. We use Oxford University Press Coursebooks (cost included in the course fee). Each group is taught by two teachers so that you can experience different accents and teaching methods. We conduct periodic assessments, which show participants their progress and indicate areas for improvement. The program ends with an official Graduation Ceremony.

There is also an option to combine the English Language Course with 120 hours (60 per semester) of Polish Language Course ».

Assessment

The course starts with a written and oral assessment test, which allows us to place participants in groups appropriate to their English competency. Learning at the appropriate level ensures rapid skill development and allows participants to communicate with an increasing ease and confidence.
